    In Madagascar and other African countries, the Chinese medicinal plant Artemisia annua, also called mugwort, is successfully used against malaria. Supposedly, the drug, administered as an herbal tea, also helped COVID-19 patients. However, there is still insufficient evidence for this.
    For the President of Madagascar it is very clear: "Covid-Organics" is the solution to the COVID crisis, Africa's gift to the world. The criticism from the World Health Organization, but also from doctors in his own country, does not unsettle him. Andry Rajoeling asks a rhetorical question on French television:

    "If it wasn't for Madagascar, but a European country that had discovered 'Covid Organics', would there be so many doubts? I do not think so."
    Popular in Madagascar as a cure for many ailments

    Madagascar is home to ten percent of the world production of the Chinese medicinal plant Artemisia annua. The important malaria drug artemisinin is obtained from it. But Artemisia teas are popular on the island as a cure for many ailments, not just for malaria attacks and flu-like infections."With COVID-19, there are also fever and flu symptoms, so it made sense to see if it helps," says Nceba Gqaleni, who studies traditional remedies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa...

    Maybe this is it, maybe not. While we go down the lab route, Nature has a natural remedy for every disease and illness; it's out there waiting and all we have to do is find it.

    Foreigners to be charged “$3000 deposit” for C-19 quarantine, tests

    The (Cambodian) government has decided to charge all foreign visitors for lab testing, medical treatment and accommodation under health measures to prevent a second wave of COVID-19 (C-19) transmission in the country.

    Under the Kingdom’s health measures, all travelers, both Cambodians and foreigners, who travel to Cambodia will be transferred from airports to waiting centres where COVID-19 swab tests are done. They are required to remain at the centres until the test results are released.

    Sao Wathana, director of the Phnom Penh International Airport, said yesterday the new requirements imposed for foreign arrivals will take effect from today (article posted yesterday).

    “Upon arrival, all foreign passengers are required to deposit $3,000 at the airport to pay for the virus prevention services,” he said. “Passengers can pay in cash or through credit cards.”

    He added that those who test negative for the virus will only be charged the fees for the test and will be given back the remainder of their deposit.

    Finance Minister Aun Pornmoinroth said in a statement on Monday that he agreed to a request by the Ministry of Health to charge foreigners for COVID-19 lab tests, quarantine and medical treatment services.

    He instructed the Health Ministry to discuss with relevant banks the possibility of setting up offices in the airport for foreigners to pay the $3,000 deposit

    The Health Ministry said in a statement that a foreigner will have to pay $5 for a single trip between the airport and the waiting centre, $100 for a COVID-19 test, $30 for a day’s stay at a hotel or at a waiting centre while waiting for the test results and $30 for three meals during their wait.

    It added that if any passenger tests positive for COVID-19, those on the same flight will be quarantined for 14 days and each will be required to pay $100 for one test and $84 dollars a day to pay for the stay in a hotel or quarantine facility, meals, laundry, sanitary services, doctors and security services.

    According to the statement, each COVID-19 positive patient will be required to pay $100 per test [maximum four tests] and $225 a day for the hospital room, medical treatment, meals, laundry and sanitary services. It added that in case of death, the cremation service charge is $1,500.

    Sechou Sethychout, deputy director of the health department at Preah Sihanouk province, said yesterday all passengers need to be ready and have enough money to pay for the COVID-19-related services.

    “During the first stage we provided the services free of charge because our country was not really prepared,” he said. “But now we have to put in place measures to prevent a second wave of the virus,” Mr Sethychout said, adding that all countries charge arriving passengers for virus prevention services.

    In March, Prime Minister Hun Sen said all patients, regardless of their nationalities, who test positive for the new coronavirus in Cambodia are entitled to have free medical treatment. “We are poor, but our heart is big,” Mr Hun Sen said at that time.

    To date Cambodia has 126 coronavirus cases, most of which were imported.

    “Upon arrival, all foreign passengers are required to deposit $3,000 at the airport to pay for the virus prevention services,” he said. “Passengers can pay in cash or through credit cards.”

    He added that those who test negative for the virus will only be charged the fees for the test and will be given back the remainder of their deposit.

    Let's hope this doesn't set bells ringing in Bkk, where they're looking to solve Thailand's tourism problem.

    Well, I did add "Over to you, sqwiril," then for some inexplicable reason thought nah, not even sqwiril could be dumb enough to scoff at this, so I deleted it. Lesson learned.

    Only partially correct. They are poor, but he is rich.

    I'm sure there is a "Bat Conservation Group" funded by concerned citizens in far off countries across the oceans, throughout the world. Similar to the Orangutan .... groups.

    Including those with medical insurance covering the virus?

    Airlines will include it in the "revised" ticket prices.

    Will land border runs be affected, or are the Thai "agents" who actually cross into Cambodia exempt? Will the "agents" increase their fee?

    The majority crossing at my local Cambodian land crossing are Thais, workers, traders and casino visitors.

    Are ASEAN citizens classified as foreigners?

    I doubt something used to inhibit a reasonably complex organism like the malarial parasite will have any effect on the virus, other than maybe hiding symptoms.

    But yes, the answer might lie in a rare plant in one of those rainforests they keep bulldozing. Who knows, it might already have been rendered extinct. Wouldn't that be ironic?

    Ah the old chinkies (and HooHoo) are still posting nonsense on the interwebs trying to convince us they didn't cause the Wuhan Virus.

    (Reuters) — Twitter on Thursday said it removed more than 170,000 accounts tied to a Beijing-backed influence operation that deceptively spread messages favorable to the Chinese government, including about the coronavirus.

    The company suspended a core network of 23,750 highly active accounts, as well as a larger network of about 150,000 “amplifier” accounts used to boost the core accounts’ content.

    Twitter, along with researchers who analyzed the accounts, said the network was largely an echo chamber of fake accounts without much further traction.

    Twitter, along with other American social media companies such as Facebook and Instagram, is blocked in China.

    Yeah, it's funny how all three of the SARS discovered in this thread come from chinky bats.

    That's because their bat buffet mixes with all these other exotic wild animals they eat in their stupid wet markets, and zoonotic viruses mutate as they migrate between species. The more mixing of species, the more chance of a dangerous virus hopping to humans.

    You dimwit.

    I wouldn't be surprised if HooHoo spends most of his day reading twatter for sympathetic bullshit about Mr. Shithole and then shares it to his follower (klondyke).

    The TD mods team couldn't believe it when I was appointed by HWMBO in Seattle.

    THE LORD pays better and in virgin Russian gold. Non of this remelted Dane Geld gold.

    A white "assistant" also makes a change from the local, light brown girls. She can be little domineering, but who doesn't like a verbal/physical thrashing or two.

    I'm sure the "huddled masses" welcomed adjacent the Statue of Liberty were all cleared 100% by the NAZI's eugenics experts brought in to manage such things, post WWII.

    Or were "allowances" made for the rocket scientists, biological warfare or nuclear bomb experts.

    Thailand is drawing up guidelines to reopen its borders

    "
    BANGKOK, June 10 -- Thailand is drawing up guidelines to reopen its borders for business travellers and tourists from low-risk countries as the COVID-19 situation in the kingdom continues to improve with no local transmission for 16 days.

    Deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control Tanarak Pipat said Public Health Ministry and Tourism Ministry are in discussion to draw up a set of guidelines to prevent second wave of COVID-19 outbreak when reopening its borders.


    “We are preparing the document. Once it is completed, we will send it to Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA),” he told Bernama."


    BERNAMA - COVID-19: Thailand draws up guidelines to reopen borders

    New source for me.

    Also mentioned at 1:20 in the Thai daily video:



    One hopes the ASEAN group will deliver the same "guidelines".

    And a two point double waffle as chief Dull C u n t Jeff weighs into HooHoo's waffle with a mini-waffle of his own.

    Both being too stupid to understand the science, hence the waffling.

    Ride-hailing app Uber is making face coverings mandatory for all drivers and passengers.


    The company said it would be requiring face coverings from Monday, the same day that Government rules come into effect requiring their use on public transport in England.

    Uber will turn away passengers not wearing face coverings from Monday - inews.co.uk
